How to commission pet portraits from photos

Commissioning Pet Portraits from your Photos


Hi Everyone, I thought you might want to see a fun video on commissioning your dog portrait from a photo. Yes all of our pet portraits on the Dog Artists website are based on dog photos that you email into us –
Our dog artists do not paint from life. Can you imagine how difficult that would be?


Pet Portraits from Photos: And what if I don’t like my dog portrait?

As we are an online art studio, I realise that you might be worried about not liking your final dog portrait.  Please don’t. We need to be proud of the work we paint and we want you to be thrilled with your pet portraits from photos so you’ll tell all your doggy friends!  That’s how our business has grown year on year, by word of mouth from very happy dog owners. Painting sub-standard pet portraits from photos makes bad business sense for us, you won’t refer us and we can’t show off our dog portraits on the website if we are not proud of them. If you’re not happy with your dog portrait when we show you your approval photo, your Dog Artist will make changes to it, until you are. Simple.


Commissioning Pet Portraits from Photos can be great if you choose the right dog artist

There are thousands of Dog artists online that you could choose from. This is your dog portrait so make sure you look at the quality of work first and style. Would the style of painting the artist paints in suit your dog? Ask your dog artist about the quality of oils and canvas they will use to paint your pet portraits from photos. This does matter. I’ve written a blog post called Dog Portraits: Quality Matters, which explains this in more detail. Will you have to pay for delivery? What about VAT? Ask all these questions first to your dog artist, make sure you love the style and quality of their work and then you will know doubt get wonderful pet portraits from photos.
